The milk teas here are nice and tasty. There's no option control the level of sugar in the drinks, though it's neither too sweet or bland. Mainly tried the fruit flavoured bubble teas, which are delicious.

Wide selection of hot and cold teas available for reasonable priced, would definitely recommend the warm taro which is creamy and comforting! Service is quick and there are a handful of seats inside.
